MITT ROMNEY

Republican Candidate for President in 2012

Figurine Number 1 - The First of Its Kind

You are bidding on a plastic figurine of Willard Mitt Romney, former governor of Massachusetts and the likely Republican nominee for U.S. President, made to look like the 60 millimeter Marx Presidential figurines of the 1950s and '60s.

The figurine is about 2 3/4 inches tall, hand-cast in resin plastic, and hand-painted with an enamel gloss.  Like the Marx figurines, the name "ROMNEY" appears on the front of the base in raised letters (the back of the base is blank).  This is the first figurine produced and, as such, is designated as "#1" on the underside of the base.  The figurine is shown next to a similarly hand-cast figurine of President Barack Obama, available in another auction this week.

As collectors know, during the run of their presidential figure series, Marx made several prototype figurines of candidates in the event that they actually won the presidency.  These figures include Adlai Stevenson, Barry Goldwater, and Hubert Humphrey.  Although they were never sold directly to the general public, many have found their way into the collector marketplace.  In 1968, Marx also made figurines of several candidates who did not even win their party's nomination, including Michigan governor George Romney.  A photo above shows the Mitt Romney figurine next to an original George Romney figurine.

This auction ends on Friday, June 15 at 6 pm EDT (3 pm PDT).  Immediate payment by the winner (assuming delivery to a postal code where the USPS makes overnight deliveries on Saturday) would get the figurine in time for Father's Day (with an additional $20 overnight mail charge).

Elsewhere in this store you'll find other presidents that Marx never made as well as hand-cast, hand-painted figurines of every major party presidential nominee of the past 60 years, a set of Supreme Court figurines, and a series of Famous American figurines.

Good luck!
